Two Publications and Some Good News

Just wanted to share two new publications, both available online. One is an essay, “Jacob Gartenhaus: The Southern Baptists’ Jew,” which recently appeared in Volume 19 of the Journal of Southern Religion. It discusses the role of the Hebrew Christian and missionary Jacob Gartenhaus in shaping Baptist attitudes towards Jews and Judaism from the 1920s to the 1940s (it’s sort of a condensation of the ol’ master’s thesis). The other is a review of Melanie Trexler’s Evangelizing Lebanon at Reading Religion. Check them out!

Also, I am excited to announce that I just recently signed on as next year’s Postdoctoral Fellow in Israel Studies at the Schusterman Center for Israel Studies at Brandeis University. I’ll be teaching “History of Jerusalem” in the fall and “Christians and Israel” in the spring (in addition to converting my dissertation into a book manuscript). So, it’s on to Beantown!
